Top 5 Videos: Wood 3D Printing by Saint-Honoré-Paris

Published on June 23, 2024 by Isaac B.

Welcome to our compilation of this week’s most compelling 3D printing highlights. This week’s edition kicks off with our very own video, focusing on Saint-Honoré-Paris and how it is using wood 3D printing for window displays and mannequins. Next up, NASA highlights some significant yet very recent 3D printing accomplishments in space. Moving forward, the GeForce channel documents their ambitious project of 3D printing a surfboard using a basic Prusa MK3 printer and recycled PETG filament. Next, Mike from “Need It Make It” conducts a comprehensive test of various 3D printed connections to determine their overall strength and durability. And finally, we finish this week with another video from the 3Dnatives team, as Elliot conducts an in-depth review of the new Adventurer 5M Pro from Flashforge. Let’s get started!

Top 1: Wood 3D Printing by Saint-Honoré-Paris

First, we present our very own video, focusing on Saint-Honoré-Paris. The company is leading a revolution in luxury retail with its innovative use of wood 3D printing technology to create stunning window displays and mannequins. In this insightful interview with CEO Geoffrey Delpy, we discover how the French company integrates sustainable practices by using wood harvested from its own forests and processed into bio-based PLA.

Top 2: NASA Update: 3D Printing Achievements in Space

Next up, NASA highlights some recent 3D printing milestones achieved aboard the ISS. Specifically, the Redwire Cardiac Bioprinting investigation achieved a significant breakthrough by successfully 3D printing cardiac tissue in microgravity conditions. Additionally, the European Space Agency (ESA) demonstrated metal 3D printing capabilities in the Columbus laboratory module, marking a significant step forward in advancing additive manufacturing techniques aboard the orbiting laboratory.

Top 3: 3D Printing a Surfboard with a Basic 3D Printer

In this video from the GeForce channel, the creator documents their ambitious project of 3D printing a surfboard using a basic Prusa MK3 printer and recycled PETG filament. They begin by downloading a complex 46-piece 3D file and meticulously tuning their printer for optimal printing results, a process that spans an entire summer due to the lengthy print times. Despite encountering issues like leaks from the fin boxes and performance concerns in the water, the surfboard ultimately showcases the potential and challenges of 3D printing in unconventional applications like surfboard manufacturing.

Top 4: How Strong are 3D Printed Connections?

Moving forward, Mike from “Need It Make It” conducts a comprehensive test of various 3D printed connections to determine their strength and durability. Using a custom-built testing apparatus, he subjects different connections—such as lap joints, dovetails, and specialized designs like the sine wave and under-squinted stop spade scarf joint—to incremental loads. The results reveal significant differences in performance!

Top 5: Testing the Adventurer 5M Pro

We wrap up this week’s top 5 with another video from the 3Dnatives team. Our host, Elliot, reviews another top 3D printer. He had the opportunity to test the Flashforge Adventurer 5M Pro, an entry-level FDM 3D printer from the Chinese manufacturer priced at under $600. You can also read our article on this printer here.
